First time poster here after years on the math board. Feel free to school me in etiquette if need be.
For most of my life, I have been a guitarist. About ten years ago, I picked up bass guitar and found I enjoyed it more and found it much more natural for my hands. I have always loved jazz and always wanted to learn upright bass, but never found an affordable one... until now. I found one. But I need to learn to play it properly.
I don't want to do my fingertips wrong, strain my wrists, etc. Although I am predominantly interested in jazz, I am looking for general resources for the beginning-est beginners on left and right hand placement, how to hold the bass against the body, etc. In other words, despite being able to proficiently read music, I want to pretend I'm starting over entirely... but on double bass. I want a resource that presupposes I know nothing, so that I don't make any assumptions that will hinder me or need to be corrected later.
I have found a few things online, but nothing really linear beyond a sporadic video here and there with no sense of where to go after that video is over. Any suggestions for books I should buy, or videos/series I should watch?
